JASPER JOHNS: ‘SOMETHING RESEMBLING TRUTH’

Tickets for this landmark exhibition featuring over 120 extraordinary works by the iconic American artist Jasper Johns to go on sale Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 at noon PT

Widely known for his iconic early images of flags, targets, maps and numbers, Jasper Johns is an artist of unparalleled importance in the last century. In the first full survey of his work in more than 20 years in the United States, The Broad is presenting six decades of rarely loaned artworks from Johns’ remarkable and inventive career—many never before seen in Los Angeles. Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’, a collaboration with the Royal Academy, London, will be on view from Feb. 10 until May 13, 2018. The Broad is the exclusive U.S. venue for this exhibition.

On Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 at noon PT, The Broad will release timed tickets for the entire run of the exhibition at thebroad.org. Tickets will be $25 for adults, free for children 17 and under, and will include same-day general admission for The Broad’s third floor galleries. In celebration of this rare opportunity to consider Johns’ entire career in depth, The Broad will host free First Thursdays with free standby admission to the special exhibition from 4-7 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month during the exhibition’s run (Mar. 1, Apr. 5 and May 3, 2018). The Broad’s third floor galleries will continue to be accessible with free general admission tickets, and will show a robust selection of postwar and contemporary works from the Broad collection.

Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ will feature more than 120 of the artist’s most significant paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. With loans from dozens of museums and private collections from around the world, including significant works from the Broad collection, the exhibition will trace the evolution of the artist’s wide-ranging practice through a series of thematic chapters. The exhibition encompasses the full range of Johns’ materials, motifs and techniques—including his unique use of encaustic (heated beeswax) and found-material collage in paintings—and the innovations he has achieved in sculpture and the graphic arts by expanding the possibilities of traditional media. Johns’ use of accessible images will be thoroughly examined, seen continually transformed through the artist’s engagement with a wide range of human experiences. In a departure from a retrospective approach, Johns’ artistic achievements will be illuminated through the juxtaposition of early and late works throughout the exhibition.

The museum will be announcing an inventive slate of public programs that will further explore and contextualize the artist’s work through the performing arts and live public discussions of the essential influence of Johns on younger generations of artists.

One of the most influential and important artists to emerge in the last century, Johns has been seminal to the Broad collection. His work emerged with and has influenced numerous other Broad collection artists represented in depth, including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari and Sherrie Levine.

About the Exhibition
Organized by the Royal Academy of Arts, London in collaboration with The Broad, Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ is curated by Edith Devaney, contemporary curator at the Royal Academy, and independent curator Dr. Roberta Bernstein, author of Jasper Johns’ Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings and Sculpture, who has written and lectured extensively on contemporary artists including Johns, Ellsworth Kelly and Robert Rauschenberg. Founding Director Joanne Heyler and Associate Curator Ed Schad are the host curators at The Broad. The exhibition title is taken from a 2006 interview in which Johns said, “Yet, one hopes for something resembling truth, some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least, in the work.”
At The Broad, Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ will begin with an entire gallery devoted to Johns’ complex treatment of the American flag, arguably his best-known image, deployed famously at the outset of his career in the 1950s as testing ground for a new direction for 20th century art, and for decades afterward, as an enduring, compelling and ever-evolving subject evoking a variety of social meanings.

Works exclusive to The Broad’s presentation of the exhibition include Figure 7, 1955 (Los Angeles County Museum of Art); Three Flags, 1958 (The Whitney Museum of Art, New York); White Target, 1958 (private collection); In memory of my feelings, Frank O’Hara, 1961 (Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago); Device, 1962 (Baltimore Museum of Art); Gray Alphabets, 1956 (The Menil Collection); Figure 5, 1960 (Centre Pompidou); and Flags, 1965 (Collection of the artist). Other highlights include Flag, 1958 (private collection); 0 Through 9, 1961 (private collection); Target, 1961 (The Art Institute of Chicago); Periscope (Hart Crane), 1963 (The Menil Collection, on loan from the artist); Between the Clock and the Bed, 1981 (National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C); Ventriloquist, 1983 (Museum of Fine Arts, Houston); Summer, 1985 (Museum of Modern Art, New York); and Bridge, 1997 (private collection).

The exhibition will reveal the continuities and changes in Johns’ work throughout his career. His use of accessible and familiar motifs established a new vocabulary in painting as early as the 1950s—his treatment of iconography and the appropriation of objects and symbols made the familiar seem unknown through the distinctive, complex textures of his works. Through his groundbreaking paintings and sculptures, Johns charted a radical new course in an art world that had previously been dominated by Abstract Expressionism.

In the 1960s, he added devices within his works, including studio objects, imprints and casts of the human figure, while works from the 1970s are dominated by abstract ‘crosshatchings.’ During this time, Johns began to explore printmaking and is now one of the most celebrated printmakers today. His work continued to evolve throughout the 1980s as he introduced a variety of images that engaged with themes involving memory, sexuality and the contemplation of mortality. From this time, Johns increasingly incorporated tracings and details of works by other artists, such as Matthias Grünewald, Pablo Picasso and Edvard Munch. The works of the 1990s built on the increasing complexity of subject and reference, and by the early 2000s, Johns had embarked on the pared down and more conceptual Catenary series which, along with other recent works, shows the rich productivity and vitality of this late phase of his career.

Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ brings together artworks that rarely travel, including significant loans from the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Institute, Chicago; the Menil Collection, Houston; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Tate, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In addition, the artist has generously loaned a number of his works to the exhibition.

Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue featuring writings by the curators Devaney and Bernstein, as well as essays from curator and critic Robert Storr, art historian Hiroko Ikegami and writer Morgan Meis. The contributing authors will discuss Johns’ extensive body of work from viewpoints of literature, contemporary culture and international significance.

About the Artist

Johns was born in Augusta, Georgia in 1930 and raised in South Carolina. He moved to New York in 1948 and returned in 1953 after two years of service in the U.S. Army. Johns’ works became widely known after his first solo exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery in 1958. Over the course of his career, he has collaborated with an array of other artists, including visual artists Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, playwright Samuel Beckett and choreographer Merce Cunningham, serving as artistic advisor to the Merce Cunningham Dance Company for over a decade. The artist currently lives and works in Sharon, Conn.

Johns has held solo exhibitions throughout the world at institutions including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Kunstmuseum Basel; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Johns won the Grand Prize for Painting at the Venice Biennale in 1988, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011.

“True To the Game”

“True To the Game”. After selling more than two million copies worldwide, the much-anticipated film version of the gritty drama premiers nationwide in theaters this Friday!

The wait is finally over for the big screen adaptation of New York Times Best Selling author Teri Woods’ cult classic novel True To the Game. After selling more than two million copies worldwide, the much-anticipated film version of the gritty drama premiers nationwide in theaters this Friday.

“True To The Game” is an action-packed urban love story starring Erica Peeples as Gena Rollins, a young Philly native transplanted to the hardcore streets of Harlem, where she ends up meeting a slick, smooth talker named Quadir Richards played by Columbus Short. Quadir is a high-rolling hustler who introduces Gena to the street life. Young and in love, the inseparable pair finds themselves tangled up in the vicious yet seductive web of drugs, money and guns.

Directed by Preston A. Whitmore II (“This Christmas,” “Doing Hard Time”), written by Nia Hill (“Colored My Mind: The Diagnosis,” “Sunday Best”) and also starring Andra Fuller (“The L.A. Complex,” “Black Jesus”), Vivica A. Fox as Shoog and Nelsan Ellis (in his final film role), the film’s executive producer Manny Halley, CEO of Imani Entertainment Group, acquired rights for the motion picture in 2008, along with plans to produce and bring another one of Woods’ bestselling novels Dutch to the big screen as well.

“‘True To the Game’ and ‘Dutch’ are pioneering bodies of work that have solidified their place in the history books,” Halley said in a statement. “Fans worldwide have been awaiting the creation of films for both books for a very long time, and we’re thrilled to bring them to life… To date, both novels have sold millions worldwide, and the timeless stories are very relevant still today.”

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native Teri Woods finished writing “True to the Game” in 1992 while working at a law firm in Philadelphia. The successful, self-published pioneer of the urban fiction genre aimed her writing at an African-American demographic largely ignored by major publishers.

She spent six years submitting the novel to several publishers, all of which rejected her. In 1998, Woods had copies of the book printed herself and began to sell copies to booksellers in and around the Philadelphia area and, eventually, across the United States. She eventually started Teri Woods Publishing, a self-publishing house to distribute her work and that of others, principally in the urban fiction genre. Woods’ success allowed her to negotiate a multimillion-dollar contract with Hachette Book Group USA to re-release her previously published novels.

THE BROAD TO PRESENT COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY OF ICONIC AMERICAN ARTIST JASPER JOHNS, OPENING IN FEBRUARY 2018

Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ to feature more than 100 work spanning Johns’ 60-year career; The Broad will be exhibition’s only U.S. venue and is the first major survey of the artist’s work to be shown in Los Angeles

Artist Jasper Johns (b. 1930), who rose to prominence with his paintings of flags, targets and other familiar objects, will be the sole subject of a special exhibition at The Broad in early 2018. Johns’ 60-year career of work will be presented in the most comprehensive survey in the U.S. in two decades. Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ is the first major survey of the artist’s work to be shown in Los Angeles, and will be on view at The Broad Feb. 10, 2018 through May 13, 2018

A collaboration with the Royal Academy, London, Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ will feature more than 100 of the artist’s most iconic and significant paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, many never before exhibited in Los Angeles. With loans from international public and private collections, including significant works from the Broad collection, the exhibition will trace the evolution of the artist’s six-decade career through a series of thematic chapters. The exhibition encompasses the full range of Johns’ materials, motifs and techniques-including his unique use of encaustic (heated beeswax) and found-material collage in paintings-and the innovations he has achieved in sculpture and the graphic arts by expanding the possibilities of traditional media. Johns’ use of accessible images will be thoroughly examined, seen continually transformed through the artist’s engagement with a wide range of human experiences. In a departure from a retrospective approach, Johns’ artistic achievements will be illuminated through the juxtaposition of early and late works throughout the exhibition. 

One of the most influential and important living artists to emerge in the 20th century, and one of America’s great living artists, Johns has been seminal to the Broad collection. His work emerged with and has influenced numerous other collection artists represented in depth, including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari and Sherrie Levine. 

“Johns’ work is central to understanding contemporary American art. We viewed it as critically important to offer this in-depth and landmark exhibition to the public, particularly in Los Angeles where his work is not seen often enough. The show provides new understanding of the continuity and variety of his incomparable six-decade career, and we look forward to introducing a new generation to the full scope of Johns’ achievements,” said Joanne Heyler, founding director of The Broad.

“Edye and I have admired the work of Jasper Johns for decades,” said Eli Broad, co-founder of The Broad. “His work is essential to our collection and to contemporary art as a whole, and we are pleased to be able to share this exhibition with visitors from Los Angeles and around the world.”

SISTAR (씨스타) – “LONELY” Good Bye

The South Korean Kpop superstar SISTAR has unveiled their final single “Lonely.”

The music is a slower track compared to typical SISTAR’s upbeat Summer singles, which really does emphasise the group’s heartbreaking disbandment after seven years of “sexy” and “health” career.

Sistar began their group activities early in 2010 with commercials and magazine photoshoots. They made their official debut with the song “Push Push” on 3 June 2010.

Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like

“That’s What I Like” is a song by American singer and songwriter Bruno Mars from his third studio album 24K Magic (2016). The song was released as the album’s second single on January 30, 2017.[1] It is the highest charting single from Mars’ studio album 24K Magic, surpassing the single of the same name by reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
